Effects of Positions of Thermistors on the Airflow Accelarater Output by 3D Finite Element Analysis
With the method of FEA (finite element analysis), the distribution of temperature field in sense organ at different arrangements of hot-resistances and different accelerations, were obtained by building the three-dimensional model of airflow acceleration sensor’s sense organ.The results are asfollows: When the acceleration is not same, the temperature field distribution near the wires is different; The difference of temperature of 2 symmetry detection thermistors ΔT has also changed. If not beyond the measurement range, The more close to the heat flow center,the greater temperature difference between the two hot-resistances,and the greater output of voltage.
